Outspoken

Women, The Wiccan Sex?

   

I was watching an episode of the popular reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians”,  and something in that episode  actually inspired me to write this piece. Kris bought a whooping four thousand dollar black dress for a party and yet held on to  Bruce’s (her husband) credit card to stop him from spending frivolously on himself.
I think that was selfish, don’t get  me wrong, I’m all for female empowerment, but in this case, not at the expense of the husband, marriage and family!

Ladies , we are to be protected , loved and cared for , but ‘please’ don’t take advantage of this , and before you crucify me for being an unworthy member of the gender , I plead that you have an open mind as you  read , and  guys please do not quote me out of context or use this as an excuse for any incompetence.

From time immemorial, women were  seen as  the weaker sex. They were the ones to be pampered, cuddled, loved, showered with gifts, etc. They  took care of the home and were responsible for the children while men went into the world to make ends meet for their families. This was the order of things, which earned the woman the fond endearment in Igbo land of Ori aku (Enjoyer of wealth), Apkuna Anwu (One who does not come out under the sun) .

This I believe was and is a worldwide practice. The question is “is this wrong?” In all honesty, I would say NO. Does that mean that a woman’s life is easy… far from it!

Back to  Kris Jenner, truth is there are women who exhibit such characteristics. These women demand and demand and give nothing back. These are the women I have a problem with.

I refuse to understand when a young student who is not working asks her boyfriend (a struggling young student also) to give her 15 thousand naira to buy brazillian weave-on because that is in vogue. Did he commit a crime by liking you? As a lady you must be considerate and realistic.

It is as if suddenly some women morphed into something undesireable, something Wiccan,  the essence of a woman is to make a positive change, to add value not demand all the value, to take a stand and not be a push-over whilst still maintaining your softness.

    the WICCAN sex? do you even know what that means? undesirable? really? i kept an open mind as i read this, not really knowing what it was about. when i got to the part where women are to stay pampered, i said “it’s okay. i understand what she’s trying to say at heart. we all need a happy medium.” But when i got to the end i was flabbergasted. did you just use the name of an entire CULTURE with someone as stupid as the Kardashians? before you attempt to offend anyone else, why don’t you research what you’re talking about, not just take someone’s word for it.

    Hello Kiki, I am glad u read d article n also kept an open mind. I’ll say this though, I actually like Kris she’s a cool person… i think. it was just a scene dat motivated me. the term wicca i do know n it’s usage in dis context( n it has so many, not just undesirable check again) is a writer’s pun used to lay emphasis and not offend anyone’s sensibility.

    Sandra, this piece is so on point. Girls if your man loves you, takes care of you best as he can, cherishes you, and adores you above any other, you have a good guy. Love him back. Be content with what he offers. Be reasonable. Be considerate. Be realistic. Don’t push him away. Don’t push him into the tempting claws of crime.

    Hi Sandra, great truth! I agree completely with you. Yes, a woman is the gentler one. She naturally tends towards being more graceful and therefore a better home maker. It’s really beautiful when women understand that this whole thing of the female taking care of the home and the men focusing on bread-winning is seen as complementary and not competative. The truth is a woman only has lower physical strength; on the inside, a good number of women are way ahead of men. And many women know about this. Its a pity that sometimes this power is being misused; as in the case of unfare demands you pointed out here. Its really a two-way street.

    There are so many programs like The Kardarshians on TV displaying and propagating immoral and wicked values. Its sad how the media especially the entertainment sector is becoming so poor in content. I’ve been wondering how I would protect my children from the trash on TV, internet and the likes. It’s really refreshing to read pieces like this. Keep it up Sandra

    I rely on each of the thoughts you may have released on your post. They may be pretty genuine all of which will certainly function. However, this articles are quite quick for freshies. Could you want lengthen these folks slightly through future time frame? Basically posting.
